Have you ever thought about adding value to the milk you produce on your farm? This May, join with other farmers to learn about value-added dairy, including visits to retails that specialize in specialty cheeses, and visits to farms that are making cheese and ice cream from their milk. Cow, sheep and goat milk dairies and cheese makers are featured, especially those producing artisan and raw milk cheeses from grass-fed animals.
This is three full days of on-site expert introduction to value-added dairy. The event fee of $695 includes:

- 3 processor visits,
- 5 retailer visits,
- 5 seminars with industry experts,
- 3 lunches,
- ground transportation to visits,

There are also optional cheese making opportunities on Thursday May 4.

- Option two – make cottage cheese with professionals from the University of Wisconsin. $525.
The event runs Monday May 1 at 8 am to Wednesday May 3 at 3:30. Seminars are offered in Madison, WI and tours are concentrated in the Fox Valley.
